Leah is Lame
Bad news for me.
According to Dr. Porter, who is an expert on lameness issues & chiropractic, Leah is lame.
She wouldn't do any chiropractic until the issue is addressed. She said she does need chiropractic, but until the actual problem is solved, it would just fall to pieces--so it would be a waste.
She suspects this has been a long-term lameness that has only now become apparent since I just started using her heavily. She says it's in her right/front leg--which is why she didn't want to move right and put pressure on it.
She recommended I get a lameness test done on her and some x-rays. Depending on what it is, there may be ways to help her.
It explains a lot.
Next step: lameness test.
